Starboard & Airush Release Dynamic FreeWing Air

Working with the design teams from both Airush and Starboard, FreeWing Air infuses innovation and ideology of different water sports into a new ground breaking design geared towards refined wind performance.

Development on the FreeWing took the design team to Thailand, Tarifa, Cape Town and Maui. With such an incredible spread and array of talent, Starboard and Airush optimized the best of light wind and high wind performance to create a product that will suit your local conditions perfectly.

What Stands Out about FreeWing?

  1.  All Around Wing with Multiple Levels of Performance
    Starboard & Airush focused on providing extra comfort when riding for extended periods on the water. Their new All Around Freewing provides reduced arm pressure for those longer sessions while every size is designed for maximum control and performance.
  2. Extended Windows for a Larger Field of Vision
    The FreeWing hi-viz windows allows for greater safety and control in crowds. Their perspective is fun = safety and the more you SEE, the safer you shall BE.
  3. Wingtips Angled Inward
    Creating wingtips that angle inward on the 5, 6 and 7m sizes help keep the tips out of the water upon launch or when being overpowered by the wind. Stay upright & flying with this innovative new design.

Starboard’s FreeWing Air offers soft, wide-spanning handles for micro adjustments on the fly, critical kevlar reinforcement to protect the wing from ripping, angled handles to provide jibes & maneuvers, and a cuff system for your leash so you only have to strap in with one hand.

Overall, the FreeWing is an excellent device for beginner fliers and those who want to amp up their game with more versatile tricks and maneuvers.  What a joy it is to FLY!

Evelyn O’Doherty
Evelyn O'Doherty, owner & publisher of the new Standup Journal 2.0, worked her way up the ranks in the world of stand up paddling. A former surfer gone rogue, Evelyn stepped onto a SUP for the first time in 2009 when a plaguing neck injury kept her out of the water from surfing. Discovering the core benefits and expanded perspective on the water that stand up paddling brings, Ev immediately was hooked. She became a strong SUP racer in the North East and a year-round SUP surfer, gathering multiple top brand sponsorships including becoming a team rider for Starboard SUP and a national ambassador for Kialoa, as well as celebrating all aspects of the sport with additional brand ambassadorships including lululemon athletica, Clif Bar, Cobian, Kaenon & Indo Board. Her love of watersports and commitment to advocacy in preserving our marine environments led to a short film made with The Nature Conservancy as part of their Clean Water initiatives on Long Island, NY, called "A New Perspective". Evelyn just keeps paddling. Today, she's stepped up to take over the helm at Standup Journal after having worked for the magazine for 2 years as senior online editor. Her dedication and belief in the power of print to immerse readers in the watersports they love even if they don't have access to the water in a daily existence plus a powerful desire to spotlight the amazing people doing rad sh*t on the water is what drives her vision for Standup Journal 2.0. Evelyn welcomes the conversation about how to make the magazine benefit as many people as possible and encourages feedback, letters to the editor and communication at editor@standupjournal.com . Now, as owner/publisher for Standup Journal., Evelyn continues to live in East Hampton NY where she has daily access to the water. When the swell is working, you can find her in Montauk rattling around in her Ford Ranger surfboards hanging out the back headed for points East.
